We know you will arrive at your destination, we have your back even when you don’t think we are there, and we encourage you to persevere, even when it doesn’t seem like you have any chance of succeeding. I am excited about journeying with you over the next four years and I can’t wait to see what you will achieve and who you will become," Headmaster Edward Hardiman, Ph.D. told the students.
